After getting his bachelor’s degree from UT Knoxville, Matthew spent two years working for UOS before returning to school to pursue his master’s degree as a physician assistant. He has always had a strong passion for orthopedics and was eager to work in orthopedic trauma after finishing school.

In addition to his work, he enjoys the outdoors, cooking, gardening, and spending time with his friends and family. He spends most of his free time hiking, fishing, or going to the lake with his wife.
